I am new to the phonics but.......,

This review is from: Language. Sex. Violence. Other? (Audio CD)
I lived in Wales for many years and I never really "got" the phonics! BUT this is a superb album and I will be looking back over their catalogue to see what I missed in my lesser informed days.
The reviews on here tend to be long time phonics fans saying this album rocks or "it sucks and they were far better back in the day when tv was black and white yadda yadda"
If you have no prior exposure to the band and want to know if this is any good if you aint a preformed fan then .... IT IS!
This album rocks, pure and simple. They may have made better albums and I will certainly be checking out their back catalogue but this album still rocks. Dakota is getting airtime now and I 1st heard it on tv, having got hold of the album there are a number of classic tracks - Rewind, Lolita, Feel and the winner Dakota. A thoroughly enjoyable ablum, has been playing non stop on my ipod for a week now, the sort of album that you can kill an hour with and not notice it pass.
For the people who claim to have hit the "next" button 11 times after 10 seconds of each track ..... well ok but thats hardly giving it a chance, the best albums I have ever heard have bitten me second or third play. if it hits you 1st time its usually disposable pop you will be sick of after half a dozen plays. This album has me hooked.
And if you happen to really hate it theres always ebay.
Highly recommended, by the way "deadhead" is superb also - playing now!!!!!
